Greetings!  

 

Hello everyone!

 

My name is Melissa Holmes and I am starting the second year of my term as Trustee at Large, which will be my fourth year on the Mission Peak Board. Looking back over the past three years I've learned a lot while I've been on the Board, about how Mission Peak works, what is most important to the members of the Congregation and the diversity of interests and opinions within our Congregation. I also really appreciate the hard work and dedication to Mission Peak that my fellow Board members demonstrate time and time again. There is always someone on the Board who is willing to volunteer to do the hard work to keep Mission Peak moving forward.

 

The reason Mission Peak is important to me, and why I volunteer in support of Mission Peak, is the sense of community I get from our Congregation. Our family does not have another organization or group where we feel the same sense of belonging that we do with all of you. I know that at Mission Peak I can be my authentic self and I will be accepted. Thank you to everyone for being a part of this great community!

 

One of my goals for this coming Board year is to continue Mission Peak's outreach into the community. I'm very excited that we were able to continue funding our Outreach Coordinator position, staffed by Deanna Kosaraju, and that we are starting to put together another all-Congregation Social Justice project focusing on mental health. In order to truly live our values we must demonstrate how we can make a difference in the world through those values.

 

Thank you for your support of Mission Peak!

This Sunday's Service - August 2, 2015

Dwelling in Uncertainty, Resting in Mystery

  

We are people surrounded by technology who like to know, but life often defies our desire for clear categories and answers. Come to the edge of comfortable; we'll dive into the questions and see if there might be a place to rest upon waves of mystery.
   
Leading the service will be Christy Baker and Worship Associate Ilze Duarte.  Music will be provided by Jay Steele.

Who We Are

Mission Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fremont was founded in 1993. We are a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.

 

Mission Peak members determine its policies, choose its minister, and support it financially.

 

We affirm and promote these UUA Principles and Purposes:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in our society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

We invite you to join us and add your commitment to ours. Mission Peak is a living and changing congregation, responsive to the spiritual needs of its members. With the leadership of our minister, we search for ways to fulfill ourselves as individuals and as a community. Joining us is a commitment to this process.
